The boathouse would go beyond pure recreation to offer an outlet for school and community-based educational opportunities.
Arlington Public Schools would have the opportunity to offer school science departments direct access to the river and surrounding ecosystems for hands-on class time. Adult education through the county’s parks and recreation department could offer adults opportunities on a variety of topics. In partnership with other local jurisdictions, the boathouse will offer a unique gateway for nature study and outdoor education making use of the special tidal freshwater river environment.
